Ryan Baker Talks Entertainment Industry Contracts with Variety

Ryan Baker was quoted a Variety article on February 4th about actor Armie Hammer and the potential downfall of his career. Reporter Elizabeth Wagmeister asked Baker about moral clauses in entertainment industry contracts between studios and talent. He noted most talent agreements list certain activities that are not permitted.

“A party seeking to terminate a contract could argue that the talent’s image has been unexpectedly tarnished as a result of something the talent did and, as a result, the talent is no longer able to bring the same value to the project. I would suspect that in a time like this, there would be a way for the parties to reach a resolution. However, it seems more facts will come to light in this case,” said Baker, who does not represent Armie Hammer, but has experience representing talent in legal disputes with studios.
